Can I make that parking space? Watch me
By brobertson on


1996 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


Tightest turning radius of any car I
have had 31.8'. You can get hooked on
this real quick. Quick u turn to get
out of a jam? No problem with this 960.

Great ride, high seating position,
great visablity, firm but not harsh
luxury ride with Michelins, great
handling, great dash, quality feel
throughout, huge trunk with pass
through for ski's. Great sound system.
Perfect conservative auto. Does not
compare with 5 series BMW though - but
it was meant to.

Best Features

Turning radius, good engine torque, overall feel of the car. Low side widow heights improve visability so you feel more in command of the car.

Worst Features

High maintenance costs at Volvo dealership. Average problems, but none major yet at 88k mileage. AC hose, brakes, switches, winter mode problems. Plastic rock splash pan breaks easily - should be heavy duty composite. Gas pedal to close to driver seat for long legged persons.
